hickenlooper and the republican governor, paul ryan's home state of wisconsin, scott walker. governors, welcome back to "meet the press," both of you. >> glad to be back. >> both states are pretty tight here, pretty remarkable is tight as well, good news for romney. a rrn hasn't won your state since 1984. and in colorado, governor hickenlooper, look at our latest polling from nbc news and marist. 48-48. i know talking to the obama campaign. i know they think it's not that close, but they know it's tight. governor hickenlooper, you start, what's decisive? what tips the scales in your state and in this election? >> well i think if you look at the mess that president obama inherited and i mean losing 800,000 jobs a month, month after month, the first few months of his presidency. he's turned it around, got 32 months of job creation, 5.2 million jobs. the national export initiative, exports were up 38%. i think people are going to hear that and i think they're going to recognize that governor romney's plan of adding $2 trillion to military spending and at the same time promising $5 trillion of tax
-anchor bill weir for your voice, your vote. >> paul ryan heads back to his home state. >> reporter: ramble through the midwest these days and the old real estate agent's mantra of location, location, location takes on a whole new meaning. for example. these voters -- they are worth their weight in electoral college gold because they live in swing state wisconsin. meanwhile, way over here in illinois, this place is a deep blue foregone conclusion. no matter what these leaf raking romney fans do. >> most of the state of illinois is going to be red but chicago's going to be blue. just going to go blue. i understand the electoral college. it's a little different situation now. >> reporter: yeah, yeah. >> you have a video camera on a stick. >> thanks a lot. lemonade. cinnamon -- >> reporter: meanwhile, back over the border, i meet the mom of a girl scout who happens to be exactly the kind of person who may just decide this whole thing. you're undecided? >> yes, i am. >> reporter: really? you're like seeing a snow leopard in the wild. this is very exciting. >> obama promised a lot of stuff and h
succeeded and then paul ryan the native son who could help out a lot. >> i also think there is a snub value. i remember when there was a recall vote and the mayor of milwaukee the democrat wanted president obama to come and he flew from washington to mississippi for a fundraiser over -- from washington to minneapolis and flew from minneapolis to wisconsin again over the state of wisconsin and failed to stop to help. >> a clear snub. and republican ares are really organized in wisconsin. they had the big recall election. they have gotten together for a major partisan fight not all the way back in 2010 but just a few months ago. >> if they he come close and don't wen a lot of people will be wondering why the romney campaign didn't go in earlier. the only time he was there until this monday was to welcome paul ryan to his home state. it was a carey and gore state but -- it was a kerry and gore state. there was a lot of evidence to suggest you can put this in play at the national level. they are now very much awake to the fact that they need offense and a backup plan out of ohio, wisconsin key
paul ryan was added to the ticket. but most importantly, the day after mitt romney had that impressive first debate in denver, we saw the phone lines lit up, we saw volunteers coming in droves and the numbers going up for mitt romney. i think momentum is clearly on the romney/ryan campaign side of things. >> let's dig in on that. one thing, governor walker. wisconsin unemployment rate is 7.3%. you've done such a good job, you're way below the national rate. in states that have lower unemployment than the national amp, does that help president obama? >> no, because voters are smart. i don't buy that others in the media have that cynicism that somehow voters conditions make that connection. you look at ohio, virginia, what we've done in wisconsin, it didn't turn around until the last two years, less than two years. and it turned around because republican governors came into those states, got the economy improving again. think about how much better it could be if we put a republican governor, a former republican governor, in charge as our president. that's the clear difference. at the con
of paul ryan as the running mate for romney and many other factors, arguably what you've done for the state there some people would say, it's now a toss-up? >> well, it really is. poll after poll, it's about as close as a tie as you can get. 49-49 repeatedly in a number of polls out there. most importantly, the poll that's conducted on tuesday. you take all the work that was done early this year, where we made 4 1/2 million voter contacts in the state of 5.7 million. we had tens of thousands of volunteers help us in my election earlier this year. that excitement it happened on. it certainly got accelerated when paul ryan was added to the ticket. not just because he's from wisconsin, but because in his district, which is evenly matched between republicans and democrats, there is there has always been a high level of respect even in the blue collar work class union towns like janesville because of the hard work paul ryan has done and will do. most importantly after that first debate in denver, we saw an increase in the polling, equally as important, an increase in volunteers aft
that succeeded in thwarting the recall effort and on having native son paul ryan on the ticket. yesterday, the campaign brought a surprise star-- ann romney to the green bay field office to greet volunteers. ( applause ) her husband had cancelled a visit to wisconsin in the wake of sandy, as had president obama, who'd planned to speak at a rally in green bay last night. both turned their efforts to the storm on the east coast. and in green bay, ann romney talked up storm relief. >> this is a time for us to care -- all americans-- to reach out and help others. >> hello, this is marley. i'm calling from organizing for america. >> reporter: of course, democratic volunteers were also working hard at their local office in another part of town. the president, in fact, has more than twice as many field offices in the state as romney more boots on the ground. and the competition for door- knocks and one-on-one contact here is intense. mary ginnebaugh is brown county democratic party chairman. >> we had a huge canvass the last two weekends, knocking on doors, talking with people. we have just been
. but the idea was all of the supporters here tonight supporting mitt romney and paul ryan and starting tomorrow morning they will all be in the different parts of the country probably mostly in the swing states. >> greta: is there any way to when he sure, ohio tonight? i know that everyone on the republican side says governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonigh >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing state i feel good about it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if he wins ohio, i think he wins and maybe president obama could feel the same way about it. this is probably the key state. >> greta: why do you all leave, ohio, and spread out across the country? why don't you al
